What is skin resurfacing
The CO2RE device offers multiple treatment options for skin resurfacing, including improvement in skin tone and texture, sun damage, age spots and fine lines and wrinkles as well as the reduction of scars, including acne scars.
CO2RE is a fractional laser resurfacing treatment, sometimes described as a “laser peel”.
The device has four treatment options: Fusion, Light, Mid and Deep for surface, middle and deep dermal layer treatments.
What does CO2RE fractional laser resurfacing involve?
The CO2RE Fusion has optimum anti-ageing results as it treats the outer layers of the skin and the deeper layer of the skin simultaneously. It provides superficial resurfacing in the epidermis increasing epidermal cell growth.
The treatment can be a little uncomfortable but topical anaesthetic is applied beforehand to minimise any discomfort. The treatment is generally well-tolerated.
One of the best things about the CO2RE is that you can achieve noticeable results with just one treatment.
You will continue to see improvements for up to three months after treatment as your skin rejuvenates.

Is CO2RE fractional laser resurfacing safe and is there any recovery time?
The evolutional CO2 treatments enables us to minimise side effects without compromising on results unlike other skin resurfacing machines. This makes the treatment much safer and results in in far less downtime and pain as well as a reduced risk of post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation, sensitivity and infection.
Following your treatment your skin may feel tight and similar to a sunburn. This may last for a few hours. You may also get some swelling.
In the seven to 10 days following your treatment your skin will start to flake and peel, which is completely normal and shows the treatment is working and that the skin is regenerating.
